Default ProTool Express/MBox 3 & OS Sierra A No Go!

MBox 3 interface hardware is not being recognized since updating to OS Sierra.
I had Protool 10.3.3 and thought to upgrade to 10.3.4 and that didn't do the trick.
Then I downloaded suggested drivers for Sierra...no help.
Now dilemna is I cannot uninstall except with suggestion to do manually. However all items to remove are not necessarily there to be removed?! Some say Avid some say Digidesign.

Soooo anyone else out there have a creative solution for me?

Hi...I have the USB Mbox 3, on Mac OS Sierra 10.12.1
It works if I restart / clean boot but, if I'm already booted and I plug the USB cable in on the fly, it doesn't work.

The Mbox shows up in System Profiler even when it doesn't work, so it's not a USB \ hardware issue -- it's a driver issue.

Nicks-MBP:~ nick$ kextstat | grep -i avid
76 0 0xffffff7f80e36000 0x1d000 0x1d000 com.avid.usb.mbox.driver (1.4.8) DD9FAB2A-B82A-3FCE-8C59-8A1BEF2C8C04 <75 44 5 4 3>

There's a whole bunch of nonsense in the system log..

default 13:03:59.582708 -0500 icdd #ICDebug - 484:{ICDDMessageCenter.m} (Mbox was added)
default 13:03:59.588238 -0500 icdd #ICDebug - 467:{ICDDMessageCenter.m} (BrowseID (0x1023) was generated for: Mbox)
default 13:03:59.588290 -0500 icdd #ICDebug - 301:{ICResourceManager.m} (00000000-0000-0000-0000-00000DBA5000|Mbox|(null)|SW=FALSE|)
default 13:03:59.588305 -0500 icdd #ICDebug - 502:{ICDDMessageCenter.m} (Mbox will query software update)
default 13:03:59.617496 -0500 icdd #ICDebug - 511:{ICDDMessageCenter.m} (Mbox is unavailable)

No idea what's going on, but I am getting tired of having to reboot every time I want to hot plug this thing.

Can someone help?

Upgraded to the new MacOS Sierra and can't get the Mbox to work. Anyone figure it out or know if a new driver will be released? http://taigamemienphichodienthoai.net/
